The Giants announced Tuesday they have signed PK Rhys Lloyd. Lloyd spent the last four seasons with the Panthers.
Giants PK Lawrence Tynes suffered an injury in Saturday's preseason game, and punters Matt Dodge and Steve Weatherford kicked extra points in practice.
Lloyd has been a kickoff specialist in the NFL and has not attempted a field goal or extra point in his pro career. He has 224 career kickoffs and 64 have gone for touchbacks.
